The Down-Low

I popped in briefly to Indigo on Friday night for the Cornerstone Root’s gig and heard some of their set. I didn’t stay for long but the dance floor was full and the band sounded good.

Also tuned into the Roots and Culture show on Active 89FM on Sunday. This long-standing show broadcasts every Sunday from 4-7pm (new extended time) and features some of the best reggae DJs in Wellington on a regular roster. Sunday’s line-up featured DJs Art Official and Spin Zero plus a set from special guest selecta Jasewon. Some of the play list on the day was:

George Nooks - Worry Not Yourself
Jnr Reid - Jailhouse
Johnny Osbourne - Purify Your Heart
Cornel Campbell - Two Face Rasta
Nicodemus - 2000 Clash War
Barry Brown - No Wicked Shall Enter The Kingdom Of Zion
Barrington Levy - Black Rose
Johnny Osbourne - Jahovia
Mighty Diamonds - 4000 Years
Ernest Ranglin & Mudies Allstars - Dark Shadows
Sound Dimension - Rockfort Rock
Lee Perry - Dub Of The Masai
Michael Rose And Jammy - Born Free
Lloyd Parks – Mafia

Radio Active also broadcasts live over the Internet, so make sure you all tune in, Sunday’s 4-7pm for this quality show.
